BLACK IKS BONES
REST AT SALT LAKE
Salt Lake City. Oct. 6. The
bones of Chief Black Hawk who
played havoc with settlers in Utah
In the early 60's are now resting
peacefully In the Desert Museum, in
the LMormon "Temple grounds In this
city. The skeleton was brought from
an Indian burial ground near Spring
Lake Villa., Utah county, this state,
and with all the accouterments ot
Indian burial, now reposes in a glass
case in the Mormon church museum.
The curator of the museum has made
every effort to prove to a certainty
that the hones are those of the fa
mous Indian chief, and the evidence
lie has gathered seems to prove their
authenticity. These include affidav
its of early settlers who witnessed
the funeral procession of the chief.
Black 'Hawk is said to ha.ve died
In 1870 as the result of a wound re
ceived in a fight with white settlers
several years previous. Prior to his
death, it is said, he visited towns in
the section he had harassed and
made peace with all of his enemies.
From veterans of the raids made
by Black Hawk's bands, it is declar
ed the Black Hawk wars of Utah be
gan in 1864 when a small band of
Indians encamped near Gunnison,
San Pete county, Utah, suffered an
epidemic of smallpox and 'blamed
the white settlers for it. The In
dians attacked small settlements In
numerous communities. Women and
children were tortured, children car
ried away and much property devas
tated, according to the Stories of
the old settlers. This continued un
til about 1872. it is said, when the
Indians, hard pressed by soldiers,
acknowledged the superiority of the

BUSINESS ON SHELF
Longton, Eng., Oct. 6. The Brit
ish potter' trade has taken alarm
at the appearance of German china
in the stores of the pottery district
at prices which, manufacturing
potters declare they cannot ap
proach. Even in this city, with its
important pottery industry, German
ware is being offered below the cost
of local manufacture.
These German goods, it is stated,
are being represented as of Dutch
manufacture, but a member of the
English China 'Manufacturers asso
ciation said that no such china was
manufactured in Holland.
The price ot the German goods is
fully 50 per cent under the cost ot
local production and this in Ixng
ton, the real home of English china.
"If it is true, as has often been
said," said a pottery manufacturer,
"that Germany has been accumulat
ing vast stocks of manufactured
soods during the war, it is possible
she has been passing tbem over the
Dutch border In exchange for butter
and cheese. 'In that case the pros-!
pect of wholesale "dumping" from
that quarter, added to the certainty
of severe direct German competition
in home and overseas markets will
create a serious situation for the
English china manufacturer."
San Bernardino, Cal., Oct. 4.
"Who won the fight?"
M. L. Cook, a civil engineer, has
returned to San Bernardino with an
amusing anecdote of how that ques
tion was asked him by a "desert rat"
! in the 'Desert Queen valley, 100 miles
out on the .'Mojave desert, where
j communication with the world in
f general Is exceedingly Infrequent.
"What fight?" demanded Cook.
"Why, the WIllard-Dempsey fight,
of course," replied the "rat". "There
ain't been any other, has they?"
So Cook "broke" what he termed
"the sad news" of the result of the
ring battle of July 4.
"Oh!' exclaimed the "rat," turn
ing despondently away.
Cook called after him that Ger
many had loste war and that the
United States had gone "dry."
